Expert Comments

Ron Guth: In 1818, Mint employees pulled out all the stops and cranked out over 361,000 Quarter Dollars, the largest mintage for the denomination since its inception in 1796, and a record that would remain unbroken until 1831.  As a result, the 1818 is the most plentiful of the pre-1831 Quarters -- by far -- and it is an excellent choice for type purposes.  Numerous Mint State examples exist, but it would be a stretch to call them common.  The best example is a solitary PCGS MS67 currently in the High Desert Collection.  This outstanding coin is lustrous and has tremendous eye appeal because of its colorful, original toning.
